Where to find International nursing jobs?
Professional Connections is working with leading tertiary hospitals around the world, particularly in Australia, The Middle East, UK and Ireland.
Why work overseas?
Working abroad is a terrific way to not only grow in your career, but also to experience a new culture and widen your horizons. Nursing or working as a healthcare professional abroad can provide an opportunity for total immersion in a foreign culture in a way that traveling as a tourist could not.
Any work experience will make you attractive to employers, but working internationally may be particularly beneficial in developing certain strengths and skills. These include:
- Initiative and determination - from finding and securing the right job to making your experience a success
- Communication skills - through working with people from different cultural backgrounds and overcoming language barriers
- Flexibility - by having to adapt to new and unfamiliar living and working environments.
Healthcare Jobs in the Middle East
The Middle East continues to be a great place to work, and our clients there have spent tremendous effort recruiting and retaining Western nurses and other healthcare staff to work at their facilities. For many, the Middle East has proven to be a place where they enjoy staying and working more than well. The opportunity to grow in your career, the financial benefits, the cultural experience, the new friendships, and the opportunity to work in a truly multicultural environment can be a positive, life changing experience. The Middle East is a place where a Western nurse can make a real, lasting difference.
The opportunities to travel are also worth noting. The Middle East is a perfect jumping off point for parts of the world, where one might not ordinarily visit. If you have a yen for exploration beyond the usual tourist traps, the Middle East has much to offer. There are Roman, Greek and Byzantine ruins in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan; meteor craters; vast deserts and spectacular Nabatean tombs in Saudi Arabia; and Tropical oasis in the Oman. The list goes on and on. Also for the ones that enjoy scuba diving, the Red Sea offers spectacular opportunities for that.
While the phrase "take your career to the next level" is overused in this industry, working in the Middle East often provides nurses and healthcare staff with far more responsibility than they would see in a comparable organization at home. For sure you will be stretched and challenged, but you will also gain valuable expertise. Working with multinational colleagues will serve you well in your subsequent career.
